In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo) I interview Dave Evans of Corante fame.

Dave's interests in identity began with his early work with identity management systems in 1997. His primary focus is on the benefits of identity and attention systems to both consumers and advertisers.

In this episode Dave describes what he calls the Identity "stack" (his view of identity from a marketer's perspective). Included in that stack are companies such as:

Low Layer = Data Providers

Trufina

RapLeaf

Upper Layer = Data and Reputation Aggregators:

Opinity

iKarma

Root Markets

ClaimID

ZoomInfo

& MicroID

In this episode of The Story Of Digital Identity (logo) I interview Jaco Aizenman.

Jaco Aizenman is contributing to the development Virtual Rights, a new set of Human Rights. He serves as a director on the board of XDI.org. He is also the founder and Consortium Development Coordinator of the Free Software Consortium that created the Free Software Act, a new legislation that can protect FLOSS (Free/Libre and Open Source Software) and the CEO of a small internet satellite access provider in Costa Rica.

Mr. Aizenman has worked extensively on Information and Communication Technologies for human development. Among others he had worked on the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank Development Gateway, Lincos, and Gilat. He also led the universalization of the email and website account in Costa Rica.
In this interview we talk about: 1. How he first became interested in digital identity, 2. The four human dimensions, 3. The Digital Identity Metasystem, 4. The Fundamental Human Right of a Digital Identity, 5. How it's seems unlikely that two guys from Central America (me from Guatemala and he from Costa Rica) would appear on a podcast about digital identity.
